Jenny and Alex met through a mutual friend at popular downtown Toronto night spot Brassaii. The pair hit it off, with Jenny telling Alex about her fitness ventures. “I just started teaching a new abs class at Fit Factory Fitness and asked Alex to come for a work out,” Jenny says.
The couple got engaged in 2017 on a trip to New York. “Alex usually plans romantic surprises when we go on vacation together,” Jenny shares. After getting dressed up for a night in the city, a private driver, arranged by Alex, drove the couple to Times Square, where he popped the question.
Being a fan of classic marble, Jenny selected colours accordingly, which included grey, white and silver. The decor was kept minimalistic, with transparent chairs and white florals. The bride and groom also wanted to pay homage to their shared love of fitness. “Our cake topper was made by Selftrait,” Jenny enthuses. “It showcased both our personalities because we’re holding two dumbbells.” The aisle was lined white rose petals and candles to create a romantic feel, creating the perfect ambiance for Jenny to walk down the aisle in a jaw-dropping train.
For their music the bride and groom reached out to one of Jenny’s clients, who was part of a band. “They played and sung beautifully as guests were entering the venue and during the ceremony,” Jenny recalls. An extra-special sentimental moment for the bride was dancing with her grandfather at the reception. “Nonno is usually very to himself and sometimes even grumpy,” Jenny expresses. “Seeing him let loose was a surprise to everyone.”
